Miss A in ONEderland Themed Cake Smash :: Methuen MA Photographer
Miss A and her mama came to my studio from nearby Methuen MA to celebrate her first birthday. We started with some portraits of the two in matching white dresses. Then it was all about Miss A. Starting with her white dress and flower crown she sat propped in a wooden bowl and played with bubbles. Some parents choose to only have a cake smash session. But typically the session will include baby portraits prior to the cake smash. This way there is a good variety! Once those were taken it was time for the fun–and cake! This Alice in Wonderland inspired cake smash was so much fun. Every single detail was perfection. When it comes to these intricate cake smash sessions I work with parents from the time the session is booked until the session itself. Sending back and forth ideas and inspiration photos. I absolutely adore how this cake smash turned out!
Choosing a Theme for First Birthday Sessions
When it comes to cake smash sessions, there is no such thing as too creative a theme. In fact over the years I have had so many different themed cake smash sessions that I never would have ever imagined on my own! Parents come up with a good portion of the cake smash theme and styling ideas. And I can never get over just how creative and imaginative people are! This Miss A in ONEderland (a play on Alice in Wonderland, of course) cake smash is such a fun idea. It definitely belongs on a Pinterest board for inspiration. Everything from the playing card backdrop, to the oversized mushroom and tea set, to Miss A’s dress is perfect. In Alice in Wonderland it might have been a very merry un-birthday. But in the real world Miss A had a very merry birthday!
The sky is the limit when it comes to cake smash theme inspiration. Books, movies, and tv shows are great starting points. If you have a character that means a lot to your family, use it as inspiration! I’ve had cake smash sessions with everything from the classics (Winnie the Pooh, Snow White) to comic book heroes (Hulk) and everything in between. If you can dream it I am willing to help make it a reality!
